From Dust I was Made and to Dust I shall return.

Ash Wednesday is always an interesting start to Lent for me. It is one of those moments in life that serves as a fabulous reminder for me. This year it was a honor to be on internship and to be able to put the ashes on the gathered assembly. The most interesting one for me, that was actually a bit challenging for me was a four day old baby girl who I had just went to visit the day before. It seemed so odd to be marking her with the ash cross and stating "Remember from dust you were made and from dust you shall return." There is also great hope and power in the realization that those are the palms from Palm Sunday and all that it entails and the events that will and do follow.
